A perfect summer morning for me is waking and sitting in the sunshine by the pool with a cup of coffee and the birds chirping while Jolie sings in the background.

Just seeing this for the first time. Loved Levon Helm, loved The Band. He will be truly missed.

I am sure that this isn't everyone's cup 'o tea, but there are a few hip hop bands I enjoy, and these guys(and ladies) do it big

This girl can ROCK. Her skill and feeling are truly impressive. Search for more of her stuff on youtube if you like these.

People were talking about feel-good music earlier. I thought I'd share a couple. I love to sing and so does my husband, so give me a song with beautiful harmonies so we can both sing along and we are golden. When our toddler joins in it becomes impossible to do anything but smile as we sing along. That's why these two are favorites (plus I think the band is phenomenal).

We have to edit the second in one spot for DD, but since she'll listen to this stuff over typical toddler music any day, it's worth it to me! The lyrics aren't quite as light and fluffy as some of the other feel-good music I like, but c'mon, look how much fun they're having!

Then a great love song by the same, and this one they're actually singing in the van:

They sound this good in a van and I posted this version because it's such a fun, goofy video, but live with all of their instruments and good acoustics... Did I mention I'm in love with this band? It also helps that they actually walked around and talked to the stragglers after the show we went to and seemed super friendly and chill. I just can't get enough!

Completely different tone, but if I'm thinking feel-good music, these two songs are a given for me, too.





And different still, more classic with this one:

Yeah I know what you mean vit. She is pretty young in those videos (16 or 17 I think) so hopefully as she matures and gets more comfortable she will relax and show a little more emotion.
